It's been a long time since the system totally collapsed. But no one could do a thing.
The world you knew no longer exists.
The times when owning a great house with a large garden meant something are over. Where a big car and the latest smartphone made an impression or your job attracted attention.
A full calendar or what appears on your paycheck at the end of the month is no longer a status symbol in our society.
No one uploads lifestyle pictures for social media anymore. What was social media again? Followers no longer matter. All these things are worth nothing after all.
That the mismatch between poor and rich would grow ever wider, that maximum consumption and greed for profit would one day become our doom …
We all knew that. Even the big boys saw it coming. But they were merely occupied with the question of how much more a squeezed lemon could be squeezed out and how much more profit could be made. Sustainability, foresight and responsibility. Just foreign words.
It’s been a long time since the system totally collapsed.
Since money itself has no value whatsoever. You’re asking me what’s important today? I guess inner values like reliability and loyalty. But what’s the point of that?
Because unfortunately, the collapse couldn’t change the nature of humankind.
So what has changed then?
Nothing at all. Ironically, the world has remained the same.
